Four of us were looking for a place to stay in Tofino short notice on May long weekend. I found the Black Bear B&B online and sent a quick email to check if they could accommodate for one night. Ten minutes later I received a call from Bobbi and it happened that they had one night available. Normally they book for 2-3 night minimums, but just ask and they might have a spot for one night. I have stayed at many different places in Tofino and Ucluelet, but this was easily my favorite:
Location: Right across from Chesterman beach means put your wet-suit on in their hot outdoor shower (they have very nice indoor showers too) and walk 4 minutes and you're in the water
Price: Rates are extremely reasonable for what you get. Check them out for any time of year as storm season rates are great.
Setting: Amazing location on Clayoquot sound. Great views of the ocean rain or shine.
Accommodations: Very clean and comfortable. The guest house is only a year or so old, and all of the amenities are new. A great mix of modern with warm and inviting wood construction.
Hosts: Bobbi and Jay were fantastic hosts. Very easy going and seem genuinely happy to have you stay with them. Bobbi was very welcoming making it feel like our home. She made us a wonderful breakfast and gave us lots of great tips on places to check out for local cuisine. Jay has been living in Tofino for over 17 years; he can tell you just about anything you want to know about the area. Ask him about anything from where to surf, to that little tree sitting on the property over there.
Definitely recommend you stay here. www.tofinoguesthouse.com The photos on the site are actual ones that Jay has taken while out guiding.
